Media Intranets LP is a family owned business founded in 2004 by George Sparkman the current managing partner. LaunchPad is the brainchild of George based on a need he recognized as COO of a nationwide media company he was entrusted to manage in 2001. LaunchPad was started on a blank piece of paper and has evolved to the premier Media Industry SaaS solution that it is today.
George Sparkman got into publishing in 1988 after finishing his service in the United States Marine Corps with a final rank of Lt. Colonel. Upon his exit from active duty, George took his leadership skills and recruiting skills to the automobile industry and created a Sales training program for dealerships nationwide. Through this venture he was introduced to advertising by his dealership friends and the need for an outlet in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to give the consumer a guide to the automotive industry. In 90 days George produced 90,000 copies of Sparkman's Automotive Consumer Guide. He was hooked, publishing was his niche. Through the years George has been an executive at publicly held and privately held media companies throughout the United States and beyond. George brings a unique set of skills by understanding the needs of an executive but also understands how to translate that need into an application that can be used.
Kelley Sparkman joined the company in 2009 after 6 years in Investment Sales of Commercial Real Estate. During his tenure in commercial real estate Kelley was a part of listing/marketing of nearly $500 Million in Multi-Family properties. This experience with finance and consultative selling was a natural fit when helping Media Intranets take the next steps in its growth in 2009.
Over the past 5 Years Media Intranets has seen on average a year over year growth of 25% and continues to be the leader in innovation for the media software solution industry.
